Town Hall meeting for former Park Restaurant site scheduled

A Town Hall meeting to gather public input on the future of the former Park Restaurant site will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Council Chambers, 270 West 15th Street, Rushville. The former park restaurant building will be open at 5 p.m. for viewing. The meeting was announced by Mayor Mike Pavey during the recent Rushville City Council meeting.

ECDC Director John McCane gave a brief report to the council of the projects they have been working on during the last year. Some of those items were the South Industrial Park near the St. Paul I-74 exit; the North Industrial Park at 200 North and Hwy 3; industrial and commercial business and expansions; local education and continuing education; and partnerships.

McCane asked for final approval of the funds for the North Industrial Park. The loan was previously approved under Ordinance 2012-18 on Sept. 18, 2012 with an amount not to exceed $2,046,799.00. The loan will be re-paid to the city through TIF funds. Council member Craig Smith made a motion to loan $1,661,575.00 from the electric liquidation fund with a 3 percent interest rate to the Redevelopment Commission. Member Brian Conner seconded the motion. Motion carried.

Mayor Pavey noted that Rush County has the lowest unemployment rate in our nine county Workforce Region at 6.5 percent.

Councilman Brian Sheehan informed the Council of several businesses that have made improvements to their buildings and made investments in our community.

Sheehan also said there is currently $9,491.00 in the Smile Fund. Anyone interested in applying for funds may contact the Heart of Rushville, Councilman Sheehan, or Mayor Pavey. The purpose of the Smile fund is helping others.

The Trash Sub Committee of the City Council has met and is moving forward on obtaining pricing to provide containers for trash and associated services.

Concerns over safety at the Little Star Academy brought to the council by operators during a previous meeting was also acted upon. Chief Tucker recommended: Allow parking on both sides of the street, paint a crosswalk with hash marks, add a yellow “school zone” sign, and define a school as a fixed facility occupied and used for the sole purpose of educating students. Sheehan made a motion to accept the recommendation of Chief Tucker. Council president Bob Bridges seconded the motion. Motion carried.
